Nest Thermostats just got a lot better!

Nest Partners with Control4 Home Automation At Nexus Electric and Smart Home, integrating thermostats with our custom home automation systems is one of the most requested functions from our clients.  Besides the obvious benefits of climate control, the convince of remotely accessing your heating systems with a phone app and conserving energy, integrating your HVAC system serves a much more important task behind the scenes. Our systems are programed to email the homeowner when something is wrong.  If your home becomes too “Cold” or “Hot” you will receive an email and a text that alerts you to the situation.  Here in the mountains, we have to worry about freezing pipes and the comfort and safety of elderly family members and pets.  Below I share a real world example of how our systems saved our clients from possible disaster.
